The second album didn't do as well as the first. The first single reached 4 and the second 16. The label probably put a lot of money into the project and made very little back.
Iirc Steps made a comment about contracts around the time changing. Around that time alot of the groups were on quite lucrative contracts, as records were selling in high volumes at 3 or 4 and albums at 12. Then the internet came in, and record sales had collapsed (pre download), and people were buying albums at 8, instead of singles, and piracy had exploded.

If they were on one of the older more lucrative contracts that would have sealed their fate. Iirc wasnt their a bloodbath around that time for a year or two where a number of big acts were dropped.
